A New Gene Interaction in the Endosperm of Maize1
- H. H. Kramer,
- Roy L. Whistler and
- E. G. Anderson2
A gene with slight morphological effects in normal dent endosperm, which increases amylose content to about 60% without increasing water-soluble polysaccharides, is described. It is inherited as a simple recessive. The symbol ha (high amylose) is proposed, and it is shown that chromosome 5 carries the ha locus.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
